It’s hard to imagine “24”‘s Jack Bauer singing a ballad, but the actor who played him, Kiefer Sutherland, also has a booming music career, and he’s bringing his act to New Jersey, performing at the Vogel of the Count Basie Center for the Arts at Red Bank.
Sutherland is best known for his acting roles, starring in “24” as well as “Designated Survivor” on television and in feature films like “Flatliners” and “Stand By Me.”
The show at Red Bank is “An Evening with Kiefer, featuring special guests Marc Copely & Rocco DeLuca. An intimate acoustic show playing songs from the new Bloor Street album. By the way, the ‘Bloor Street’ album is available on CD, Vinyl and, presto, cassette!
The Emmy and Golden Globe-winning actor has a musical style described by AllMusic.com as a “sympathetic amalgamation of earthy, country-pop, American and classic rock.”
He told the Asbury Park Press that the songs he has written during the pandemic have proven to be surprisingly upbeat, “I tend to be a bit sarcastic and pessimistic, it’s the sense of humor that I ‘ai,” Sutherland said. “So I find it ironic that during one of the toughest times in most people’s lives in recent years, I ended up writing some really positive songs.”
Sutherland performs The Vogel at the Count Basie Center for the Performing Arts at Red Bank at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 9, with special guests Marc Copely and Rocco DeLuca. Tickets cost between $20 and $79. More information is available here.
